Could the Watermill at Posara make an author out of you yet?

February 4, 2014 | The Watermill at Posara

They say that everyone has a book in them. But this particularly rings true at The Watermill at Posara, where yet another alumni from the Tuscan retreat has had their book accepted for publication. Rachael Thomas will be the fourth student to become an established Mills & Boon author, after attending one of Sharon Kendrick’s courses at The Watermill. Sharon herself has written more than 90 books for Mills & Boon and is a USA Today bestseller.

So, if you’re an aspiring author, head to Tuscany to The Watermill at Posara where Sharon will be leading a Writing Romance course in May. The week-long course is made up of group and one-to-one tuition, and you’ll be guided through the whole writing process, from plot, characters and dialogue, right through to selling your story and becoming a published author. With glorious Italian food and wine flowing, all you have to do is write.

Taking place from 3-10 May, Writing Romance costs from £1,310 pp (two sharing) including all tuition, seven nights’ accommodation, all meals (including local restaurants), drinks and aperitivi, transfers (to/from Pisa), local transport and a mid-week excursion. Flights extra.
